Question about Dell Dimension 5100 (D51L1) PC Desktop

1 Answer

CD stuck in Dell Studio 15.

I put a blank cd into my drive to burn some music over, but the disk was not recognised and now won't eject. Is there any way to get it out easily? Someone somewhere said about inserting a needle in, but uh, I have no idea what part of the drive I should be probing about in to release the disk.

I literally got this laptop a fortnight ago, and I really don't wanna go paying to get something as simple as this removed. Anyone know how to deal with this?

I have dell studio-15 and lately the CD/DVD drive continously ejects any CD/DVD without reading it. It cannot be read. I cannot write onto any CD/DVD either.


1. Try to boot to your computer using the Operating system disk see if the OS disk ejects try step 2

2. Try to go to the BIOS by tapping F2 upon boot see if the cd/dvd drive ejects

3. The reason for this if the problem is reoccuring outside of windows then the problem is mechanical and cd/dvd drive needs to be replaced

4. Else we need to do Operating System Reinstall or format the hard drive

Cannot find the icon to eject cd from Dell Studio 1558? how can I eject the cd disk?


You can eject cd's by right clicking on Computer (from your Start Menu) then right click on the drive you'd like to eject. There should be an option to do so.

Studio 15 laptop the dvd is stuck and no bezel


Try to take the disk out of the computer using the following option

Normally the studio laptops have soft eject for the CD and they dont have a button.. Press and hold the Fn key and then press the F10 key to eject the cd.. Another way is get into computer.. Right click on the DVD/cd rom drive and click on eject... This will work....

If its still not working callup Dell to fix the issue since it might be a issue with the DVD drive even

Ejecting cd dell studio 17


Supposing that the Studio 15 / 17 has a slot loading drive:

You can either press the eject button above the keyboard (the touch sensitive one)

or

Go to 'Computer' in Vista and right click the CD/DVD drive. Then click 'Eject'.

This should work.
